RE: Another vellum question

Hi Camden,

It's odd that you asked this question today since last night I tested Clear
Print 1000 vellum. Unfortunately, it seems to be nearly opaque to UV light. 

A one hour exposure only produced minimal density with traditional
cyanotype. Perhaps a more powerful UV source would work more effectively.

I was interested in using Clear Print since negatives printed on it have a
large dot gain producing a very soft looking image.

It does make an interesting inkjet print though, used with a RIP for B&W
printing or just color using the printer driver might yield a unique look.

Subject: Another vellum question

While we're on the topic of vellum, I too have a question (I didn't want
to hijack Sandy's post, so I'm starting a new thread).

How about a high quality vellum that would make a good digital negative
substrate?  I'm looking for something that prints well on an inkjet
printer, but is transparent enough to act as a negative.
